story of how the obama administration combats threats to american civilians and wages what it no longer calls the global war on terror. from the very beginning after september 11th, american policy in this area has been constructed through a series of often ad hoc decisions made during the intense moments following acts of violence against the united states. those decisions have then gone on to have tremendous ripple effects and unintended consequences. today as we find ourselves in one of those intense freighted and immense moments, the question of how the obama administration reacts is one we should all be paying attention to. and there is no journalist in america, in the world who has reported on what the war on terror actually looks like under the obama better than any next guest, jeremy scahill. his amazing chronicle of the obama war on terror, new book "dirty wars" publishes tomorrow. the film of the same name will be in theaterers in june. "dirty war" is probably the most comprehensive account to date of ma what america's battlefield looks like, a battlefield constructed with eac
combatant is upsetting several republicans. >> i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as enemy combatant. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin, joining us from new york. can or should a u.s. citizen be formally given this enemy combatant status? what does the law say? >> every terrorist suspect arrested in the united states, since the first world trade center bombing in 1993 has been treated in the criminal justice system, not as an enemy combatant. standard operating procedure. frankly, the whole status of enemy combatant remains ambiguous in the legal system. the prisoners in guantanamo bay remain in legal limbo. by treating them as criminal suspects, the obama administration is avoiding all kinds of risks and simply acting as the bush administration has in the past and as they have acted in other terrorist cases by using the normal criminal procedures. >> because linds
disbrea disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> we are moving up to the boat he was actually laying down on the side of the boat, one leg out, one hand out. as we got closer, he sat back up. >> he just sat up. he's moving, flailing about, quite a bit of movement. >> the suspect's in custody. >> tonight, dzhokhar tsarnaev goes to court at his hospital bedside. and there is more. the magistrate says he is lucid. adam housley is live in boston with the latest. adam? >> reporter: yeah, gret a. in fact, in the hospital behind me, there is significant security, downstairs and throughout the hospital. the u.s. marshal service has taken over the security situation of him specifically. they have marshalls by his room, in the hallway, all standard procedure when the macials take control. before that, it was local law enforcement and the fbi. so the marshalls will be in charge of him, until he is well enough to leave here. once that happen, he will fly out via helicopter, like whitey bowlser did. they feel li
where bomber two had placed his knapsack. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> when we are moving up to the boat he was actually laying down on one side of the boat. one leg out, and one hand out, and when we got closer, that's when he sat up. >> he just sat up. moving about. quite a bit of movement. >> suspect in custody. >> tonight dzhokhar tsarnaev goes to court at his bedside. and there is more. they say he is lucid. adam. >> in the hospital behind me there is significant security not only downstairs but throughout the hospital. the u.s. marshals service has now officially taken over the security situation of him specifically. they have marshalls stationed by his room, in the hallway where he is. all standard procedures when the marshals take control. before the fbi was doing that. marshals will basically be in charge of him until he's well enough to leave here. we are told once that happens he will likely fly out via helicopter to a different hospital. it's the best way of takin
the process. we are not going to make a big deal about it. the enemy combatant debate which is essentially closed at this stage. they decided it was a political debate more than a legal one. >> i mean, there was never really, at least among the obama administration, never a thought of having this guy being charged or treated as an enemy combatant. >> nor in the bush administration. every terrorist arrest inside of the united states has been tried in a united states criminal court, in a federal district court. that's what president bush did. that's what president obama did and this fellow is an american citizen. it's far from clear that there's any law that would allow him to be tried as an enemy combatant. this is a procedure we know works. people get tried in criminal courts every day. the combatant laws we don't know that one can be successfully conducted. that's lost in a mar ras in guantanamo bay. this case will take a long time, be expensive and complicated but he's going to trial and there's going to be a verdict. we know that. >> jeff, thank you very much. fran, julia, as well. appr
of the proceedings. what's your assessment, jeff, of the initial hearing and the fact that the obama administration decided to try him in civilian court rather than as an enemy combatant in a military tribune jal? >> i think the military tribunal was a complete nonstarter. there has never been an american citizen arrested on american soil charged in a military tribunal. it's just simply never going to happen. it certainly didn't happen in the bush administration, didn't happen in the obama administration, so that was never -- that's just not -- it's irrelevant at this point. now the case is under way. the fact that he was well enough to be arraigned on the complaint means now that the government will move to present this case in the grand jury, probably within a month there will be an indictment, and then the case will move to a federal district court. at that point, i expect things will slow down quite a bit. i would be surprised, given the magnitude and complexity of this case, that there could be a trial inside of a year, but at least now the process is under way. >> juliette, from a law enforce
